Each year they aim to grow and invest their profits in to making the site a better user experience for their players, in an attempt to cater to every players needs.
Style & feel of site
The style of the site is sleek and professional. The site follows a yellow and black colour scheme. As soon as you land on the home screen you can see that it is a highly established brand, however, we are not fans of how busy the site is. If you are a usual online casino player you will be used to busy online gaming sites, so this should not be too much of an issue.
Player Promotions & Wagering
Betfair offer players a nice neat welcome offer to get them started. When just starting out at Betfair they offer you the chance to test out the games you want to. When you become a money player at Betfair you get 30 Free Spins to try out on a selection of their best slots. Your free spins are released over 3 consecutive days, 10 per day. They also have various welcome bonus options to choose from. Option 1 is 100% match bonus up to £100 to play on all games (wagering 45x). Option 2 is a 200% bonus up to £400 to play on their huge selection of slots (wagering 35x). Or if you fancy something different, the live casino welcome bonus goes as follows: 50% bonus up to £200 to enjoy on Live Roulette in their brand new rooms (wagering 40x). It's pretty obvious which offer we love the most here at JustSlots - Option 2 with 200% bonus on slot games! But the choice is yours!
